How To Maximize Delta 8 THC Effects?

Delta 8 is one of the fastest-growing cannabinoid products in the world, and for good reasons. 

Ever since it hit the mainstream in early 2020, consumers of cannabis-based products can not seem to get enough of it. 

People who preferred something lighter than THC or marijuana have become fans of Delta 8 because it allows them to maintain focus even when they are high. 

Experienced users of the product know-how to maximize Delta 8 effects, but if you are a new user, you need time to master it.

Delta 8 offers several therapeutic and medicinal benefits, and the mild highness it gives you is a thing of bliss. If you want to feel that sense of calmness for longer, you can do some clever things, and we will show you how. 

But first, you need to know how Delta 8 works.

How does it work?

Delta 8 is indeed a cannabinoid, but it does not work exactly like THC, which is another name for Delta 9. While Delta 9 binds with CB1 in the central nervous system, Delta 8 binds with both CB1 and CB2 receptors. 

Referred to by many as an analog THC, Delta 8 products are less intoxicating than THC. To be fair, it will make you high but not in an aggressive way. What it does is that it generates a powerful and euphoric sensation in the user instead of disorientation.

Moreover, Delta 8 is known to have certain benefits. It improves sleep, cures chronic body pain, prevents nausea, induces calmness, and is an appetite booster. So you see, besides the feeling of euphoria it induces, it also offers consumers several other benefits. While many other cannabinoids are taken by people who just want to get high, Delta 8 offers much more than euphoria.

How to maximize the effects of THC

If you are already accustomed to THC, we are sure that you enjoy how you feel when you are under its influence. However, can you prolong the feeling for longer? Continue reading to learn how

  • Mix Delta 8 with CBD

One excellent way to maximize the effects of Delta 8 is to mix it with CBD. This practice is called the “Entourage Effect.” Many people who use this method have reported different reactions, but believe us when we say it has all been positive. When you mix both, the mixture causes the potency of both products to increase exponentially. What we are simply saying is that both CBD and Delta 8 THC increase in power times two. Why so? 

Simply because this combination targets the CB2 receptors in your body twice as much. This leads to a deeper body experience that is better experienced than imagined. Combining both will give you a calming high for an extended period.

  • Start with little doses, then increase intake gradually 

If you are new to cannabis in general and Delta 8 specifically, you don’t want to lose your orientation by taking more doses than your body can carry. This is because new users have a very low tolerance level, which is true with almost every intoxicant. Since you have little or no experience with what your body can carry, you will not know how much is enough for you. So we recommend that you start with small amounts and raise your intake gradually in a sustainable manner.

Doing so will keep you calm and under its influence for longer. The form in which you take THC also matters. If you take it in the form of edibles like gummies or snacks, the effect will take quite some time to kick in. If you smoke it or use it as a tincture (tiny drops of oil), the effect will kick in faster. However, you will not know which volume is enough for you at first.

When you take it gradually, the effect will also be gradual, and the more of it you take, the livelier you will feel.

The side effect of Delta 8

As you commence your Delta 8 journey, please bear in mind that certain side effects are associated with this analog THC. You may feel mouth dryness, drowsiness, or develop red eyes. If you feel any of these, do not worry, as these effects are normal. With time, they will dissipate. If you are fortunate, you may stop feeling it altogether as you continue to use it.
